We are now staging the first release of the modernized Minpack version at
We are interested in feedback for the Fortran package (supported via fpm or meson), as well as the C and Python bindings. Let us know if you find something that is not working as expected.
To use this version of Minpack with fpm it requires nothing but a dependency in the package manifest
[dependencies] minpack.git = "https://github.com/fortran-lang/minpack"
For meson projects you can get the minpack dependency via
minpack_dep = dependency('minpack', fallback: ['minpack', 'minpack_dep'])
To use mesons subprojects include a wrap file with the following content in
[wrap-git] directory = minpack url = https://github.com/fortran-lang/minpack revision = head
Finally, for Python projects we offer a shortcut via
meson-python to directly build the Fortran projects and the Python bindings
pip install https://github.com/fortran-lang/minpack/releases/download/v2.0.0-rc.1/minpack-2.0.0-python-sdist.tar.gz
We didn’t upload Minpack to PyPI yet, because we want to gather some experience on the usability of
meson-python as build backend first before we fully commit to it. The disadvantage of this build setup is obviously that you cannot use the Minpack installation in Fortran anymore
